Monza’s famous Villa Reale is one of the most popular attractions in the area, particularly during the weekends, when people enjoy strolling in the open air along the avenues of the park and over its lawns.

Indeed one of the most striking features of the villa today, apart from its architecture and graceful perspectives, its stuccos, chandeliers and lavish furnishings, is its accessibility.

Designed by Giuseppe Piermarini on the orders of Empress Maria Theresa of Austria and completed in 1780, Villa Reale’s ambitious layout is striking in its grandiosity and in the opulence of the royal apartments, the small court theatre, Appiani’s rotunda and each and every one of the Villa’s 700 rooms.

The Villa’s rose gardens worth a visit, with over 4000 rose varieties presented each year at the local flower show which has been a tradition since 1965.
